Isa has your pre-Secret Garden vibes sorted with this fiery guest mix

SECRET GARDEN is one of Sydney’s most loved boutique events, with a focus not on the biggest and best acts that money can buy, but their love of their community and providing a unique experience year in, year out. Of course, it helps that the line up is always stacked with exciting emerging talent spread out over multiple stages, and this year’s event is no exception.

From the main stage that will feature DZ DEATHRAYSTHE HARPOONSSTELLA DONNELLY and more to specific, niche stages that turn the festival into a choose-your-own-adventure wonderland like CAMP QUEEN FITNESSTGI SECRET GARDENTHE COSMOTEQUE and more, each stage is decked out in its own theme specific to the vibes on offer, so when you’re wandering through the forest stumbling upon different settings it really does feel like you’ve tripped down the rabbit hole.

One particular stage we’re excited about is LET’SIN, which is focussed on femme power. Curated by MATKA, who spearheaded the CARMEN VERANDA stage last year with AMRITA, once again there is a stack of exciting DJs and performers from Sydney and beyond like JADE LE FLAYMOWGLI MAYJADE ZOEKING IVYEMISUL and ISA, who has kindly put together an absolutely stellar mix for us to get us even more in the mood to let our hair down and let go of our inhibitions next weekend.

Packed with her favourite booming, bass heavy tracks that include RnB remixes, hip-hop tracks and just straight up bangers, ISA (who recently #rebranded from Pop Rocks) has delivered a 20-minute snapshot into what we can expect next weekend at the LET’SIN stage, and it has us absolutely itching to get back in the forest. If you were lucky enough to get tickets before they completely sold out, congratulations and get ready for a weekend like no other. Catch the mix below now and be sure to tune in to hear the mix on our radio show on FBi Radio this Saturday from 5-6pm. You can hear it on 94.5, DAB+ or stream online at fbiradio.com.
